Critic reviews for Fear And Trembling
"Fear and Trembling," this week's episode, is as gripping an installment as any so far is a testament to how well the stuff that's working is actually working, because not all of it is.
We almost expect [Otto] to get up out of his chair and whack every last one of them, physical impossibilites be damned. And he just might, but until then, he remains a quiet force to be reckoned with.
Despite this being one of the darker episodes, it was also one of my favorites. It progresses the story along nicely while forcing me to develop sympathy for every character, even stinkin' Dodd.
If there's one thing you can say about Fargo, it's that the show never lets the plot drag! Fargo Season 2 Episode 4 made serious moves in terms of forwarding the plot and deepening existing characters.
Fargo brought together some of its key storylines, but prioritized the ways they affect its characters over ways they the affect its plot for fantastic results.
